Over the weekend, my best friend Ian was quite free then gave me a call ‘Woi, want to go have lunch? Go Batu Caves there makan’? I was like harr.. serious? Batu Caves? then he was like very good eh, will never introduce you wrong food, then I call Ken along too. Driving from my side to another side to hunt for this restaurant. Pan Heong Restaurant is one of a well know restaurant that attracts many from near and far. He also mention that why I should come here to makan is that they use Charcoal to cook! anything cook with charcoal always create another flavor out of it.

Pan Heong (1)

Pan Heong Restaurant is very well known to many locals especially their neighborhood area. With the quality of food and of course their very reasonable price had attracted people from all over then. It was Sunday morning and I was blow away on the numbers of customers queueing up for a table.

Pan Heong (2)

My other group of friends came earlier, therefore we got a spot pretty fast.

Pan Heong (3)

As when I dine in a new place, I always love to observe other tables on what they are ordering or what are the usual repeat order that they(diners) eat.

Pan Heong (4)

As my friend told me, they started off in under a tree and their business had grew so fast then they move to shop lot themselves.

Pan Heong (5)

Started off with a simple Vegetable @ RM 11

Pan Heong (6)

We did not order white rice therefore we go for their Fried Rice as I see many people order. It is a very simple dish that they fried it till very aromatic and ‘wok hei’ as I always love my fried rice to have chinese sausage. @ RM 15

Pan Heong (7)

This is one of their signature HOr Fun and supposedly to order their ‘Sang Har Mee’ but as majority would prefer this for this round. @ RM 15. I love the gravy texture, smooth with egg add up onto while it is serving very hot to let it cook itself while its hot. Smooth gravy and pair very well with the koey teow.

Pan Heong (8)

Next one of my favourite is their Kao Yoke Mee Hoon @ RM 17. Mee hoon was not fried too dry, moist as it originally suppose to be and eat along with the soft fatty Kao Yuk is just perfect. – Recommended!

Pan Heong (9)

Nam Yu (fermented bean curd) Pork is one of the dish not many places can cook well. I must say this place have done it well, that I nearly whack the whole plate by myself instead of sharing it with another 7 more pax. It is well marinated and deep fried to the edge is crispy, and the taste of fermented bean curd is there that do not over power the taste or too strong. – REcommended! @ RM 18.50

Pan Heong (10)

One of the dish that many table order is their Porridge. Then we opt for Fish Porridge @ RM 18. Silky smooth texture of porridge just like the one I had it in Hong Kong, sign’s of being boil long enough to come into this texture. Notice that the fish meat cook instantly under the super boiling hot porridge. Its a bit mild in taste yet just taste good~ Heee,, for sick people, it would be a good meal for you guys.

Overall, the food is not bad and the portion charge with the prices I would say its on the cheaper side as total bill came to RM 105 and dine with total 8 pax.

Road trip for food is definitely fun, especially when you go with a bunch of all hungry eaters that are responsible to eat and pay only, as on the way up north to Penang, we decided to do a little food hunt in Ipoh for early breakfast at Foh San (富山), and I have dine before at Ming Court Dim Sum which is quite disappointing  . .This round, we all agree to try out the famous Foh San Dim Sum which I heard so much over other bloggers or they rate it as best dim sum in Ipoh.

fu san (1)

We reach around 11am and there are still strong crowd inside the restaurant, with many people waiting for tables, as I have heard that strong crowd will pour into this outlet as early as 7am-9am which is the  most peak. .

fu san (2)

They used to operate in a smaller building as their business boom that had attracted many people from near and far, this is the new restaurant outlook which had expanded to 2 times bigger compare to their old outlet according to my friend.

fu san (3)

Modern tea house with nice floor titles, wooden chairs and marble and wooden tables are all well place around the restaurant. Now in order to get tables for pax of 10 person, all of us spread out equally into 4 sections, 2 at the bottom left and right and upper floor left and right. It really depends on your observation and luck to get a table, as you have to monitor your table closely with other public customer around too. . .

fu san (4)

If you come at 11am, quite a number of items are sold out, which is some of their signature item . .  will come back again for next round . .

fu san (5)

As all hungry eaters are ready to hunt for food and this plate I do not know what’s the name, its like a pao and sprinkle with pork floss, taste a bit dry and not my choice of item . .

fu san (6)

‘Malaikou’ is one of the best I had so far, super soft and spongy, and great in aroma . . have to eat it while its hot.

fu san (7)

Water-chestnut cake a bit more like jelly and slices water chestnut inside is fresh and something to eat after your hearty dim sum meal as closing ..

fu san (8)

 

fu san (9)

A simple delight that must not miss is Siew Mai, Har Kau then followed by some corn pork dim sum . .

fu san (10)

Pai Kuat

fu san (11)

Chicken Feet

fu san (12)

 

fu san (13)

 Lai Ngau Pau – is pronounce something like that, which is a must eat item! this was the last piece I manage to get as the pork meat melts in your mouth and the gravy inside is just nice to make it perfect! highly Recommended. . .

fu san (14)

fu san (15)

Loh Mai Kai

fu san (16)

fu san (17)

Porridge is also one of their signature which is also a must have item to try, as the texture of it silky smooth, mild in taste and just add a bit of soy sauce is just perfect. Highly recommended

fu san (18)

Fried loh pak kou, not many restaurant can fried this evenly and nice, as this restaurant is exceptional that fried till some edges are a bit crispy, not too big piece and got wok hei . .

fu san (19)

fu san (22)

fu san (23)

Their Egg Tart turns out to be impressive too, crispy side soft egg yolk spread in the middle. .

fu san (24)

By the end of the day, we were all very satisfied with this meal as we rate this one of the best Dim Sum so far we have come across, fresh, and not only that, the most important is their price which turns out to be pretty cheap, as we paid only around RM18 per pax for alot of dish!

Now only I understand why so many people flock to this restaurant, even I did a road trip down to Ipoh just to eat this dum sum and they like it, and ask when shall we drive down again. No doubt that this is one of my recommended Dim Sum place if you do pass by Ipoh.

If you are looking for a kopitiam with standard nice food to eat, I would say Kedai Makanan O & S would be one of the best neigbourhood kopitiam that served alot of nice hawker food. I have been here many times with my collegue which they rate one of their favourite kopitiam and always have to reach here before the super peak lunch time 1pm which will flock by most people that work around the area. I have nearly tried the food range at this coffee shop and I only took picture once just to share on that it . .

You have to stare at the person that sitting at the table to ask them eat faster, its my turn to sit and eat those kind of atmosphere. If you want to get a place easily in this coffee shop, just come after 1.45pm where most of the office people have to go back to work.

ons (1)

ons (2)

Beef Ball Noodle apparently turns out not bad, that clear in soup base and I love mine to have a mixture of all parts in my bowl. The soup is a bit sweet with reddish taste which can be told that had been boil for quite some time. The beef meat is soft and love mine to dip with their own homemade chili sauce. Not bad for a quality like that, can give it a try .. RM 6

ons (3)

A few times I walked pass this Char Koey Teow stall that fried till very aromatic and smells so good, then decided to order, it smells nice, not in taste as its  a bit blend and texture is a bit moist which I prefer it to be a bit more dry.

ons (4)

If you are craving for Penang Laksa, this would be one of the recommended place to stop your crave from Penang. Fish meat chucks with strong blend of fish meat in the soup base is soury, and a bit spicy , add on with the ‘har kou’ would be just nice. One of my collegue favourite.

ons (5)

Next is this Chee Cheong Fun stall which have a bit similar taste of my Penang favourite style with thick shrimp paste style add on with sesame and fried onions . . Taste very nice at first, but till the end I find it a bit salty, well, my colleague they all love it . .

ons (6)

Another dish to recommend is this Yeong Tau Fu Stall that you can see many tables or at least 8/10 tables will order this. Sweet in soup base and the fried ‘sui kau’ is a must order that crispy edge and stuff with mince meat is good!

One of the crowds favourite which I did not take picture is Penang Prawn Mee or Har Mee which is one of the best that I have eaten so far in PJ or KL, with the soup is sweet with prawn shell and pai kuat taste, that you can add on extra ingredient like Penang style. starts from RM4 which is highly recommended~

If you are craving for some Penang food or hawker food, then o n s kopitiam would be one of the Kopitiam I would recommend to stop on your crave.. .  Do look out for their Penang Prawn Mee and Laksa. .

Quite a number of times that I drive pass through this shop especially on weekend, there will be usually a huge crowd standing at this newly open restaurant about 2 months ago for dim sum Restaurant Jin Xuan Hong Kong. Traffic will be bad around this area as you can see many people standing and hunting for tables.

Thus it gives me the urge to give them a chance to try it out with my curiosity is it that nice?

timsum

According to one of my friend, the owner used to have a few shops in this area and now decided to combine up and make a big one which is very eye catchy when you drive through the road on morning at weekend.

timsum (2)

First dish that the guy came over was with ‘Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fun’ that served cold instead of hot or warm that turns out to be not that nice.

timsum (3)

‘Pork Pau’ was next its served warm but then the filling in it is cold already (wondering they just steam for a while and took out already), the gravy of is a bit sweet and salty.

timsum (4)

timsum (5)

timsum (6)

‘Siu Mai’

timsum (7)

One of my favourite that I will not miss in tim sum is ‘Pai Kuat’.

timsum (8)

‘Har Kau’ that the skin is quite thick.

timsum (9)

‘Beancurd Skin with fish ball paste’ turns out to be quite good, cripsy on the skin, dipping it with chili and sweet sauce  is just nice.

timsum (10)

‘Fried Prawn’

timsum (11)

‘Fried Lou Pak Gou’ if its served hot then would taste much nicer.

timsum (12)

‘Char Siew Bun’ with butter skin on the top layer is not bad.

timsum (13)

‘Polo Pau’

After had this few, we do not have much of the appetite to continue already and when then bill came into around RM45 and with that kind of pricing, I can go for better options. Crowd is just the matter and the food taste so so only surely doesnt come anything near to Hong Kong taste.

[update 5/5/2016] tried again and still taste normal and it is quite expensive now.
